I owned a 30' Spectre with 300 promaxs. I had a tunnel tab but it porposed like crazy over 80. In mirror flat water the boat was almost undrivable. It would porpose so bad it would almost loose control. Unless you had a 1 to 2 foot chop, then you could see some speed. If I used the center tab the boat would try to hook. I had the boat 4 monthes and sold it. I now have 35' Motion 1/4 canopy and it is by far the best riding boat I have ever had. I have never ever had that "OH ****" feeling when coming off a wave or out of a turn and not knowing what the boat is going to do. It flies staight and level and lands on air. I have had my 75 year old grandparents with me as well as 8 year old kids and nobody has ever gotten scared where I had to slow down. The Eliminator digs in very bad on turns. In rough water the bow is very flighty. I have had my differance with the owner of Motion but it is a great boat. I wouldn't leave it out as an option. My throttle man Larry goldman has 2 30' Motions, 1 Warlock and 1 Eliminator for sale right now. You may want to call him at 954-558-8045 or 305-947-3278

Hey Maximus,
I can't keep them too long. I have another 43' on the way so I'll be running with you at the next Ft. Myers run in the fall. You need to come down and check out this new 36' cat of ours. I'd like your opinion.
